I’m from Athens, Alabama, which is a small town close to Huntsville in north Alabama. My inspiration to go into education came from my father who was a phenomenal teacher for 50 years. I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1999 and received my master's from Central Michigan University in 2006. My husband Jody and I have lived all over Atlanta and now live in Decatur. We have two girls, Ellie and Lydia, who are 11 and 8 years old. Our family loves to travel, cook, and read.
